Le Creuset cast iron casseroles are a hit with TikTok teens

TIKTOK – Emily in Paris landed on Netflix at the beginning of October to make dreaming strangers. But another French woman steals the show on TikTok: the Le Creuset brand. For many months, young teenagers, mostly American, found a new passion in these kitchen utensils made in France since 1925. Discovered thanks to the algorithms of suggestion of social networks, the cast iron pots are one of their craziest desires.

To share their best discoveries with as many people as possible, they have fun making TikTok videos, as you can see in the video above. Some present their collections, their latest purchases and others the latest casseroles that catch their eye. The hashtag “Le Creuset” currently has nearly 20 million views.

Among the most active users of the community, it is possible to find Ave.Abe. She introduces herself as “La Creuset Girl”. On her profile, she has only shared videos of cooking pots since April, the time of confinement. During this period, cooking was one of the favorite activities on social networks, which surely allowed the cast iron casseroles to make a place for themselves.

Across the Atlantic, Le Creuset has succeeded in establishing a fairly strong brand image. Several stores have opened in New York highlighting the French art of living. In an article, the journalist from Financial Times Renée Kaplan explains that having a branded cooking pot allowed her to pass into the category of “the elite of New York, the one where I could now prepare a real coq au vin for a dinner”. Until the day when the prices of casseroles reached 800 dollars …

In 2019, Donald Trump decided to apply a customs surcharge on certain European products such as champagne, cheese or even some cosmetic products, in response to the subsidies granted to Airbus. France is more precisely part of the American viewfinder since it voted to introduce a tax on digital giants. Le Creuset is on the list (which you can find here) of the United States government imported products to be overtaxed. Sanctions that were renewed last August as reported The world.

This coverage on social networks therefore benefits the luxury utensil brand (the price of casseroles is around 250 euros). “Social networks have been at the heart of our strategy for several years. A strategy that aims at a wider target, but also younger, and brings us closer to our consumers thanks to these daily interactions ”, specifies the brand to Konbini. In particular, it allows the brand not to be left behind by younger brands like Our Place or Great Jones. To attract the youngest, Le Creuset has produced a special Star Wars collection.

Covid-19 accelerates job destruction

A current health crisis has accelerated the changes in the world of work already at work, according to this report, published on Wednesday, which looks at the future of employment with what the organizers of the World Economic Forum which is usually held in Davos, Switzerland, describe as a “fourth industrial revolution”.

“What was considered the ‘future of work’ has already happened,” said the authors of this report in a statement, stressing that the recession triggered by the health crisis “has caused the labor market to change faster than expected. “.

By 2025, automation and the redistribution of labor between humans and machines is likely to disrupt some 85 million jobs globally, particularly affecting jobs that will evolve with technological change, such as typing. data, accounting and administrative support.

But new technologies will also lead to the emergence of some 97 million new jobs, among others in sectors such as personal care, companies linked to this fourth industrial revolution, particularly in areas such as artificial intelligence, or even in the creation of content.

Fourth industrial revolution

According to this report, 43% of the companies surveyed expect to reduce their workforce due to these new technologies, 41% plan to use more subcontractors while 34% plan on the contrary to recruit with these technological changes.

Sense of urgency

This report, in its third edition, is based on the projections of senior business leaders, including human resources directors and strategy directors, who represent nearly 300 large companies.

Compared to the two previous editions, the authors of the study note, however, that job creation is slowing down while job destruction is accelerating.

The health crisis has “worsened existing inequalities,” noted Saadia Zahidi, director general at the World Economic Forum, quoted in the press release, the report highlighting a “new sense of urgency” to accelerate conversion.

“In the future, we will see that the most competitive companies will be those which have invested heavily in their human capital, the qualifications and skills of their employees,” she said.

Nearly 50% of workers who will keep their jobs over the next five years will need retraining, according to this report.


Volvo Cars shines in safety

Initiated by Volvo and organized by the Swedish agency Forsman & Bodenfors, this campaign positions the car brand more than ever as a pioneer in the field of car safety. Visible on social networks and on the Volvo Car website, this black and white digital campaign is presented in the form of several testimonials from people involved in car accidents and who were saved thanks to the seatbelt.

It must be said that when it comes to automobile safety, Volvo has always been able to pioneer. The automobile brand is also at the origin of the most important inventions and innovations in the history of automobile safety.

Past, present and future innovations
Since 1927 Volvo Cars has consistently focused on safety, making it one of the core values ​​of the company. In 1959, for example, the Swedish brand pioneered the three-point seat belt which was released in series production on the PV544 model. Thanks to this system, a million lives have been saved, a situation that then prompted Volvo Cars to give up its patent so that the seat belt could benefit everyone. Since 1959, the brand has never stopped developing innovations, each more ingenious than the next, such as side airbags and inflatable curtains. In the 1970s, it was behind the creation of the first rearward facing child seat.

“With all of these innovations and those to come, Volvo Cars aspires to save a million more lives. At Volvo Cars Maroc, we are more than ever faithful to this objective since the principle that guides us in everything we do is, and must remain, safety ”, declared Mr. Abdelouahad El Kadiri, President of Scandinavian Auto Maroc.

The safety technologies developed by Volvo are today the most advanced in the automotive industry. Volvo for example introduced in 2020 new innovations such as the speed limit to 180 km / h on all of its vehicles. Motivating drivers to reduce their speed is only part of Volvo’s commitment to take active responsibility in the fight to achieve the goal of zero fatalities.

Volvo has also implemented on-board cameras on its vehicles which allow cars to intervene automatically in the event of impaired driving or distracted driving. Volvo has also recently introduced the “Care Key” system which aims to combat speeding.

With such a system, Volvo car owners can program a speed limit to the car when they loan it to a young family member or a less experienced driver. In addition, and thanks to LiDAR sensors, the next generation of Volvo cars will be all set for autonomous driving. Volvo will continue to roll out OTA software updates to provide fully autonomous highway driving.

Vitamin D im Winter
These 10 foods protect you from infections

Foods with particularly high levels of vitamin D.

Foods with particularly high levels of vitamin D.

Our bodies need vitamin D – but many people don’t have enough of it. The supply drops particularly in winter. This can bring infections, depression and other ailments with it. These 10 foods are real health boosters and are rich in vitamin D.

The sun plays a crucial role in the vitamin D balance. If it is missing, the body has a problem: it no longer absorbs enough of the sun vitamin. The result: our immune system is weakened and we become more susceptible to infections. At the same time, our mood drops and we feel really exhausted. And vitamin D should also play a role in the fight against Covid-19 and possibly strengthen the immune system against the Sars-CoV-2 coronavirus. When the sun is missing, eating right can help. We have ten Vitamin D foods selected that will help you prevent a deficiency.

Food with vitamin D: To protect the immune system, bones and psyche

It is estimated that almost 50 percent of Germans have a vitamin D deficiency. Older people, small children in particular, but also healthy adults consume too little of it. Vitamin D is important for the immune system and the bones. It is also said to have a positive effect on certain diseases. These include, for example, cancer, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis or diabetes. And depression can also be related to a vitamin D deficiency.

There is even a suspicion that people with vitamin D deficiency are more prone to Covid-19. To what extent there is something is currently being investigated. In any case, one thing is clear: a healthy vitamin D level in the body helps the immune system to defend itself against pathogens. And that can only be helpful both in the cold, cold season and during a pandemic.

Our bodies make vitamin D when we get the sun. A few minutes a day in the fresh air is good for many reasons. But what if the sun is barely shining again? In winter, but also in bad weather, it is often dark outside. And people who work all day in closed rooms or even at night get little sunlight. Fortunately, foods with vitamin D help.

Vitamin D is mainly found in foods of animal origin

Although we take in relatively little of this important vitamin through food, this amount can be decisive, especially in dark times. Fish such as salmon, herring or tuna are among the largest suppliers of vitamin D – but cheese, eggs and mushrooms also contain the so-called “sun vitamin”.

This is how much vitamin D is in these ten foods:

  1. Hering: 100 grams contain 31 micrograms of vitamin D.
  2. Salmon: 100 grams contain 16 micrograms of vitamin D.
  3. Oysters: 100 grams contain 8 micrograms of vitamin D.
  4. Tuna: 100 grams contain 5.4 micrograms of vitamin D.
  5. Eel (smoked): 100 grams contain 90 micrograms of vitamin D.
  6. Lebertran: A spoon (approx. 15 grams) contains approx. 49 micrograms of vitamin D. Extrapolated to 100 grams, this is approx. 300 micrograms of vitamin D.
  7. Owner: An egg (size M, approx. 50 grams) provides approx. 1.5 micrograms of vitamin D.
  8. Cheese: For example, 100 grams of Gouda contains 1.3 micrograms of vitamin D.
  9. Mushrooms: 100 grams of porcini mushrooms contain 3.1 micrograms of vitamin D. The same amount of mushrooms is 1.9 micrograms of vitamin D.
  10. Avocado: 100 grams contain 3.75 micrograms of vitamin D.

With fish, it should be as sustainable as possibleso that you not only do something good for yourself, but also not pollute the environment too much.

How Much Vitamin D Does the Body Need?

The German Nutrition Society recommends 20 µg vitamin D per day – if the sun does not produce it yourself. This guideline applies to children from one year of age, adolescents, adults as well as pregnant and breastfeeding women.

By the way: The vitamin is relatively heat-stable and is retained at temperatures of up to 180 ° C even during cooking. Food with vitamin D can therefore be processed into warm and healthy dishes without any problems.

In addition, some edible oils and margarines are now fortified with vitamin D so that the body’s daily requirements can be covered more easily.

Vitamin D could also protect against corona – but only in moderation

A vitamin D deficiency is noticeable – An overdose, on the other hand, is hardly possible, at least through the sun or through food, as the body regulates production, for example when staying in the sun for a long time. But there are also preparations as Food supplements. In this case, you should make sure not to exceed an amount of 500 micrograms per day, at least in the long term, or, in the case of higher doses, to be accompanied by your family doctor. There is also critical Öko-Test, because vitamin D tablets are often overdosed. So are many in Corona times Vitamin pills are not an ideal option. Then it is better to use the above foods with vitamin D.

Important: To avoid Covid-19 or the Coronavirus To protect Sars-CoV-2, you should by no means rely solely on the power of vitamin D – if only because the protective effect has not been proven. The most effective protection remains To keep your distance from othersto wash your hands thoroughly and to maintain good hygiene regularly and to wear a mask to protect others. You should also ventilate regularly in closed rooms with several people during the cold season.

And if you want to go in the sun: Don’t forget sun protection and sunbathe safely!

Incidentally, vitamin D also protects against breast and colon cancer. Read more about it here.

Constipation or difficulty defecating (BAB) is a problem that is often encountered by many people. You can improve your bowel movements by eating a number of healthy foods.

Studies show defecating difficulties affect 20 percent of the population, with nearly everyone having experienced difficulty defecating.

Difficulty defecating is caused by several triggers such as decreased food movement, a low-fiber diet, aging, and lack of physical activity.

A number of healthy foods that are generally rich in fiber can help facilitate bowel movements.

Apples are a good source of fiber, which helps your intestines digest food and form stool quickly. Apples also contain pectin soluble fiber which has a laxative effect.

Studies show apples can speed up the transit time of food in the colon, reduce symptoms of constipation, and increase the number of good bacteria in the gut.

Vitamin B5 helps fight stress

Vitamin B3 supports normal growth and development. Like the previous ones, it is found in energy production. It is also involved in the synthesis of sex hormones. To fill it up, look for the liver, veal cutlet, not to mention tuna, salmon, cod and whole grain cereal products.

There are 8 B vitamins in all, even if the numbering is a bit haphazard since it goes up to 12. So I continue with vitamin B5. To simplify, let’s say that it allows fight against stress. Multiple and varied addresses to find it: brewer’s yeast, calf’s liver, mushrooms, cashews, oatmeal, lentils or avocado. I only give you a few of the most vitamin-rich foods each time, but you can see that we often find the same foods.

Among its many functions, vitamin B6 works for the formation of red blood cells and the regulation of sugar levels in the blood. If you want some, check out poultry, fish, canned chickpeas, lentils, liver, or sesame and sunflower seeds.

Vitamin B9, vitamin for pregnant women

Vitamin B8 is necessary for the metabolism of carbohydrates, lipids and proteins. You find it in egg yolks, sardines, soybeans, bananas or mushrooms. Vitamin B9, it is not to be neglected if you are expecting a happy event. It is the vitamin of pregnant woman because it helps protect against certain birth defects, plays a role in the production of DNA and the functioning of the nervous and immune systems. In short, if you are pregnant, Ladies, know that your baby needs it so this is not the time to skimp on organ meats, vegetables or even flax and sunflower seeds.

Last vitamin: B12. We have not found better for the maintenance of nerve cells. This vitamin also gives a helping hand in the production of genetic material. The milk, fish, eggs, meats and poultry contain it. It is only found in foods of animal origin.

The picture is so complete that one could get lost in it. You have seen the diversity of foods that I advised you according to vitamins. So if there is only one thing to remember, it is that, without doing apothecary accounts, you simply need to eat balanced and above all diverse.
